WESTFORD — Welcome to the April 3 edition of Weekend Wrap-Up where we highlight the most important news you may have missed this week in Westford.
This is a new series aimed at simulating a Sunday paper, and to condense the most important news this week into one easily digestible story.
Local firefighters from Westford, Groton, Littleton, Ayer and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation responded to an approximately 16 acre brush fire near River St.
“The cause remains undetermined,” Westford Fire Department Deputy Mike Denehy told WestfordCAT. “The state DCR is looking into it, estimating 16 acres of land.”
The farm has not announced reopening dates for its other activities, but hopes to fully open in April.
“All of the Westford Activities will open sometime in April, but we are still figuring out the exact date. We will post again (and update our website) when everything opens,” wrote Kimball Farm on Facebook.
